The beloved Bird books are bestsellers in Tankard's native Canada. He lives in Vancouver with his wife and two children. You can visit him online at


"Jeremy Tankard's deceptively simple tale is a useful tonic for moody kids -- and their parents -- but the best thing about it is the comic perfection of Bird's face as he marches along in a fury." -- The Wall Street Journal

"Grumpy Bird would make a good addition to storytimes with themes of emotions or imagination." -- School Library Journal
